FOIL

This installation used two very inexpensive and readily available materials – scaffolding and radiant heat barrier foil – to create eye-catching entrances to a downtown arts festival.  The thousands of foil ‘leaves’ glittered and glistened in the sun and wind and shifted color throughout the day with the changing light.  The lightweight materials and simple scaffold structure meant the whole thing was erected and taken down in a matter of hours before and after the event.
